New Mom Kylie Jenner's Post-Pregnancy Confessions
By: Mary Greenberg
In the few short months since welcoming daughter Stormi on Feb. 1, Kylie Jenner has learned a thing or two about the ups and downs of motherhood.
"Pregnancy completely changed my body at a super young age. But I really don't care," says new mom Kylie Jenner, who welcomed daughter Stormi on Feb. 1.
"My boobs are ... three times the size, which bothers me. I have stretch marks on my boobs. My stomach isn't the same, my waist isn't the same, my butt's bigger, my thighs [are] bigger."
The complexities of post-pregnancy imperfections in women and the pressure to correct those imperfections as fast as they can is a widespread issue in this country. Pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful time that women should be embracing. The time immediately after pregnancy should be spent enjoying their newfound motherhood ... not worrying about getting their bodies back to the state it was before a baby grew inside of them.
"After Stormi, I feel like people think that I bounced back super fast, which I guess I did," says Jenner. "[And people think] everything is just so perfect. People can get the wrong idea on Instagram sometimes. I don't ever want women to get the impression that my struggle was easy and that their struggle isn't their individual struggle. In reality, it's not easy for any of us."
She added, "Especially at such a young age to see your body go through such a change, and it is physically, mentally and emotionally a challenge. I had to change my style a little because nothing in my closet fits me from before."
Now having a daughter has made it extremely important for Kylie to help eradicate stigmas and to broaden the view of what beauty is in society. "Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. It is truly in the eye of the beholder. A beauty lesson that I want to pass on to Stormi is probably just be carefree and experiment, and let her experiment with her look and who she wants to be," says the makeup mogul.
So what got her through the ups and downs of pregnancy you may ask? Well the answer is one that you may expect coming from the tech-saavy Jenner. "Oh man ... this app absolutely saved my life during pregnancy! For any expecting moms out there, I totally recommend that you download the Ovia Pregnancy Tracker. Trust me! I first downloaded it as a means to keep track of my weeks, but surprisingly it had so much more to offer than that."
"Along with tracking my weeks, I was able to track what my baby's growth is on track to be. Ovia did a good job of explaining things that I should expect both while my baby was still inside of me as well as what to expect during the first couple of weeks when she arrived. I was very meticulous. I took notes ... monitored my blood pressure, weight, meals, symptoms, and sleep cycle (all of which I was able to do inside of the app)."
So we know the million dollar question is: How did she do it??? How did she get her post-pregnancy body to "snap back" so fast after Stormi arrived? Does she have some magical formula that women around the world don't know about? Well, the answer also lies within the Ovia Pregnancy Tracker app.
"Everyday, the app sent me daily exercises and diet tips that kept me relatively in shape during my pregnancy. Therefore, I was able to drop the post-pregnancy weight extremely easy when the time came. My favorite feature on the app was the ability to chat with other expecting moms just like me. Of course, I had to sign up under a fake account lol. But remaining anonymous allowed more real and raw answers and tips from the entire community. They made my life soooo much easier. That is my true pregnancy confession!"
The Ovia Pregnancy Tracker app is available now on both the iOS and Android App Stores. Completely free of charge, they have a incredible history of helping expecting mothers everywhere.
